The NV Awards 2011 was a night of great prestige in the urban professional
community; the black tie affair brought together professionals and entrepreneurs from all areas in
business, entertainment and the arts. Host Daymond John (ABC's Shark Tank), and Kemberly
Richardson (ABC's Eyewitness News) were the perfect team with their witty banter and
influential stories to present the honorees with their awards in the intimate setting of the theater.
The ceremony opened with the poised Alvin Ailey dancers and closed with the angelic voice of
the young Pop/Opera singer, Charisse Mills. Guests were in great spirits despite the early winter
weather, they sipped creative cocktails from sponsor, Grey Goose, enjoyed delicious hord'ourves
from a private caterer and desserts by Tonnie's minis. Post reception is where the fun began and
everyone let loose on the dance floor to the tunes of DJ Jon Quick. Overall, the night was one
filled of inspiration and surely one that will be unforgettable to those who attended.
